Congratulations to my repeat VIPs Kim & Kelly on your #SRSSOLD!!!!

18 years ago we met. You were 1st time buyers looking for your perfect home and I was a 2 year realtor rookie still trying to make my career a success in the challenging world of Real Estate. I must have done something right because, after all this time, you are 1st time sellers of a home you have loved and I am still your personal family Realtor® who, first day on the market, had your property conditionally #SRSSOLD with a backup offer - both of which were over asking list price. This resulted in your property tying for 7th place as the most expensive property in Lawson Heights mls history EVER SOLD without a garage. BOOYA!!!! #RENE

Heartfelt Thank You for choosing me again to assist you in your real estate needs.  Words cannot describe how I feel representing you again and accomplishing such an amazing result for you.  When I spoke with you in our first consultation regarding my selling strategy of your home, you trusted me fully, executed all my demands and the result predicted happened with such gleaming success, it was like a script come to life.  It was a pleasure & honor helping you purchase this home almost 2 decades ago and I feel the same again… plus incredibly satisfied selling it for you! I truly appreciate your continual trust, support and friendship over the years.  Now you can fully move forward and officially start your new life path.

When buyers view your property, they’re likely to visit each room and look around. Their imagination is turned on high. Often, within just a few moments in a space, they’ll form an impression — ideally, a positive one!

 
So, how do you ensure each room shows well? Here’s what buyers want to see:

1. Space. Buyers will often mentally fit their furniture into a room when they see it. So, make sure each room is uncluttered and staged in a way that showcases its spaciousness.

2. Functionality. Buyers want to see the room for what it is. So, if it’s a bedroom, but you’ve turned it into an exercise room, it might become a distraction to buyers. Consider restoring the room to its original purpose.

3. Themselves. Buyers want to imagine the room as part of their home, not yours. They want to see themselves in it. That’s why it’s smart to depersonalize the space as much as possible. For example, replace the family picture on the wall with a landscape print.

Anticipating how buyers will view each room will help you stage your property effectively.

Worried about Finding a Home if You Sell First?

There are many reasons why selling your current home before buying another one may be a good idea. But, once you’ve made that decision, you may still worry that you won’t find another home to buy after you sell.


Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to minimize that possibility.

For example, if you sell first, you’ll know exactly how much you’ll be able to put towards a new home. Having that specific number in your back pocket will enable you to target your search and jump on buying opportunities right away. When you see a home you like, you won’t have to wonder, “Can we afford it?”

Creating a buying plan will also help ensure that you find the home you want, quickly.

Ideally, it should have a shortlist of neighbourhoods or areas you are considering. Narrowing your search in that way actually increases the likelihood of finding a “right fit” home. You should also create a profile of the kind of home you’re looking for — type, number of bedrooms, etc. — as well as the features you need, such as a spacious kitchen.

Being open-minded about the homes you see is also crucial. If the “perfect” home isn’t coming up in the listings, be flexible. Often, a less-than-perfect home can become a dream home with just a few improvements.

So, replace worry with planning and action. Then, once you sell, the home you want will be out there – and you’ll find it!

There were 854 sales recorded across the province in February, a year-over-year decline of 19 per cent. However, while sales are down year-over-year, sales activity remains stronger than pre-pandemic levels and above long-term, 10-year averages.

As seen in prior months, Saskatchewan continues to report new listings and inventory levels significantly below long-term trends. There were 1,360 new listings in February, down 18 per cent year-over-year and nearly 28 per cent below 10-year averages. While the months of supply did push above six months, inventory levels were down 6 per cent year-over-year and 31 per cent below 10-year averages.

“We continue to see higher lending rates and supply challenges contribute to a pullback in sales,” said Association CEO Chris Guérette. “I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, but our biggest concern is still inventory levels, specifically in the more affordable segment of our housing continuum.”

The provincial benchmark price reached $318,500 in February, slightly higher than the $317,400 recorded the month prior and 0.4 percent higher than February 2022.

“Year-over-year sales declines were to be expected as we returned to a more balanced market where sales activity is more consistent with the historical 10-year averages,” said Guérette. “Saskatchewan remains one of the most affordable jurisdictions in the country with a resilient market that is well-positioned for stable demand in home ownership.”

Regional Highlights

Year-to-date sales and new listings have slowed compared to the previous year across all regions apart from Prince Albert. Melfort, Moose Jaw, Saskatoon and Swift Current all reported below-average year-to-date sales as inventory levels remained below long-term trends.

A shift in sales when compared to inventory levels have resulted in increased months of supply in many regions across the province. However, every region in the province apart from Swift Current is reporting months of supply well below 10-year averages.

Price Trends

February price trends varied across the province, with prices increasing in Melfort, Prince Albert, Saskatoon and Yorkton. In most regions, price adjustments are relatively small as we continue to return to more balanced conditions.

North Battleford saw a year-over-year price decline of over 14 per cent in February. There are a number of factors that may be impacting prices in the area and it is too early to tell if this trend will continue to play out over the next several months.

City of Regina


Sales activity slowed for the second consecutive month, contributing to a year-to-date decline of 21 per cent. Despite the decline, sales activity remains consistent with long-term trends for this time of year. While both sales and new listings have improved over January levels, the monthly gain in new listings did not change the inventory situation. February inventory levels fell to the lowest level reported for the month since 2013 and the months of supply once again fell below four months.

Regina reported a benchmark price of $310,200 in February, slightly below the $312,200 reported in January but well above the February 2021 price of $295,900.

City of Saskatoon

 

Sales activity slowed for the second consecutive month, contributing to a year-to-date decline of 19 per cent. Further declines in new listings kept inventory levels 36 per cent below 10-year averages for the month and the months of supply remained under four months.

Saskatoon reported a benchmark price of $372,400 in February, up from $366,000 in January and nearly three per cent higher than this time last
